Microsoft Slowing Down Xbox One Preview Acceptance Rates due to “Tremendous Response”

on August 25, 2015 9:41 AM

If you managed to get into the Xbox One preview program, then you’re set, but if you waited it out, it might be more difficult to gain access from now on. Program Manager Emily Hanson announced on the private preview forums that Microsoft is slowing down the rate at which it’ll accept new registrations, because the program is near capacity.

“Due to a tremendous response from our fans, the Xbox Preview program has reached a near capacity level. With that in mind, we are slowing the number of new people we are accepting to optimize for testing. We are thankful for the amount of interest we’ve received to date and look forward to sharing more details on preview opportunities soon.”

Of course, we’ll continue keeping you updated here on DualShockers on what happens in the preview program going forwards.
